In this paper we provide a formalization of a set of default rules that we claim are re- quired for the transfer of information such as causation, event rate and duration in the interpretation of metaphor. Such rules are domain-independent and are identified as in- variant adjuncts to any conceptual metaphor. We also show a way of embedding the in- variant mappings in a semantic framework.
